Amicus reaction to rising unemployment figures

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 18, 2006) -

Amicus General Secretary, Derek Simpson says,

"These figures show that jobs being lost in manufacturing and finance are not being replaced. The arguments for a flexible labour market are pie in the sky. Unemployment is rising and will continue to rise due to weak employment legislation. What the UK needs is stronger employment protection for UK workers."
